Exterminator alerts Columbus family to fire

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) –  An exterminator alerts a family next door that their home was in flames around 9:30 Tuesday morning.

Crews were called out to put out flames at 3818 Commander Drive in Columbus.

Firefighters tell us when they arrived at the home, the family was outside of the home, but the family's pet bulldog was still in the home and had to be treated for smoke inhalation.

The fire, we are told, started in the screen porch area.

The fire resulted in about $30,000 in structural and content damage to the home.
